Where to buy fresh seafood around Palm Harbor?

I have moved to the area recently and have not found a great place to get fresh seafood around Palm Harbor. I did a search that mentioned some places in Tampa, but I would like to find something closer. Thanks in advance.

  1. I'd recommend checking out Pelican Point Seafood at the end of the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs. It's right next to Rusty Bellies Restaurant. I believe both have the same owners and the fresh fish from the Market is served at the restaurant daily (Closed Mondays).

    Here's an old article from the St. Pete Times for more info...

    Pelican Point Seafood
    933 Dodecanese Blvd
    Tarpon Springs, FL 34689

      Thanks! We ate at Rusty Bellies a month ago and loved it. , but I somehow missed the market. I think I will take a trip there this afternoon.

        that's where i go often too; there's also another place i like better but can't remember the name! it's off the beaten path in tarpon, you turn off alt 19 right behind captain jack's and follow the road around to the left. it's on the "other" side of the water. north something or other. they have a bigger selection over there, i've found.

        speaking of rusty bellies, now i've got a hankering for fried oysters, hush puppies and an ice cold bottle of chimay...

          I love Rusty Bellies's's corn casserole...

            okay! i just woke up and i'm hungry. is it too early in the day for a cold bottle of chimay? .that corn casserole sounds good. i'm not far from rusty bellies...hmmmmm maybe it's time for a visit...

            I believe this is the place you're referring to:

            Northside Seafood Market
            1078 Island Avenue, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689

              i'm going to guess that's it, kempshark. all i know is how to get there and that there's the word "north" in their name. thanks for finding it :)

        2. Thanks everyone! I will be headed to both spots to check them out this week.
